Tell Congress: Donate All Oil Company Campaign Contributions to Save Gulf Wildlife

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife

Big Oil’s influence in Congress is toxic to the legislative process – like the oil now choking large swaths of the Gulf coast.  

Money-fueled political favors for the oil industry mean lax oversight, pollution and inaction on climate change that’s threatening the very survival of some of our most beloved species.

During the 2010 election cycle, the oil and gas industry has already contributed nearly $14 million to federal political candidates and parties – money that could and should be spent to clean up Big Oil’s mess in the Gulf.

Say “No!” to oil money in politics and “Yes!” to Gulf restoration efforts. Urge your U.S. representative and senators to donate and any and all campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry to support local Gulf charities working to save wildlife.
